Here For Culture - Great Dorset Steam Fair

Dear All

As you will be very much aware, the event industry was decimated by the Coronavirus Pandemic in 2020 including the postponement of the 2020 Great Dorset Steam Fair. The ongoing problem the GDSF Board of Directors face for 2021 is that of uncertainty as to what statutory restrictions will be in place at the time the event is scheduled for this coming August.
At this time it is still planned for the 2021 event to go ahead, however, as you can appreciate, the safety and wellbeing of our Visitors, Exhibitors, Traders, Staff and Contractors is always our primary concern, combined with the effect to the Local Area, Parishes and Residents. We are also very conscious of the impact that the event would have on Emergency Services, Local Authority and Partner Agencies, and we do not want to unnecessarily stretch their resources any further.
With the above in mind, the GDSF Board of Directors will be contining to closely monitoring matters over the next few weeks and a further review will be made at the end of February after which I will be able to give a further update.
Please keep safe.
Martin Oliver, Managing Director, Great Dorset Steam Fair Ltd.
